will be divided in to six 15-minute segments. allotted to topics related to the economy, healthcare and government. tens of millions of americans will be watching. according to the polls, most have already made up their minds. one recent poll says 7% of likely voters are still undecided. they will be the primary targets tonight. as the neigh watches. chief white house correspondent ed henry begins our coverage. >> in the run township the clash that will help decide whether he gets another four years, president obama stayed mum. leaving the heavy lifting yet again today to former president bill clinton in new hampshire, who made the case this is a choice about the next four years. >> the economy is not fixed. i am telling you, nobody can fix this much damage in four years. but the president's economic plan is better in the short run, better in the long run. >> reporter: the president made the opposite case in 2009. vowing to get the economy fixed in three years or this would be in his words a one-term proposition. which is why senator marco rubio told fox he believes the president will be vulnerabl
. >> today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> so john harwood, before we talk about this back and forth, i want to talk about the psychological impact of the rate falling below 8% today. >> it's positive for obama and say that the rate is where it was when i took office. i don't think we should be under any illusions. 7.8% is a high unemployment rate, weak economy. it is a talking point for the administration, and it will get a lot of media attention. it doesn't change the underlying economic reality facing americans, which is not good. >> the labor department lsd employers added 114,000 jobs in september. the goal would have been around 150,000, 155,000, right john? >> exactly. there were upward revisions from the month of august, which is positive for the administration. generally speaking as one labor economist told my colleague"th,n economy with three speeds, slow, idle and reverse. we're in slow mode right now, and this report reflects it. >> let's brin
the president is leading look at this number, economic optimism. 57% now believe the economy is recovering. that number is up six points in just the past few weekz. ultimately this race will be won in nine battleground states. florida, virginia, and ohio romney is tight in the races with the states of fluidity, florida and virginia. in florida obama and romney are neck and neck. virginia romney has narrowed the lead from 5 to 2. another statistical tie. in ohio the president has improved his standing. he leads romney there by eight points. and for those wondering about the party idea the sample is less democratic in ohio this time than the last poll. digging deeper into our numbers we divided thet battleground states by three measures. president's job rating. romney's favorability rating that number is still under water he has problems and the question of which candidate is better equipped to manage the economy. remember the unemployment rate is 5.9% in virginia. romney's favorable in florida but under in virginia and ohio. when it comes to who is better able to manage the economy a questi
this is not what a real recovery looks like. the labor department reports the economy added a seasonally adjusted 114,000 jobs last month which brought down the jobless rate to an unexpected 7.8 percent. here is a look at the unemployment rate since 28 state. the gray area on the left is the president since the recession. the rate has not been this low sin the inauguration in january of 2009. of course, this could be a potential boost to the president's campaign. no incumbent since the great depression has beenwith unemplo8 percent. the president said the economy is moving forward and suggested governor romney's policies would spark another financial disaster. >> we made too much progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. i cannot allow that to happen and i won't allow it. >>trace: governor romney downplayed the new jobs numbers. he wrote in a statement and i quote, "this is not what a real recovery looks like. we created fewer new jobs in september than in august and fewer jobs in august than in july. we have lost over 600,000 manufacturing jobs since president
: steve, on the economy specifically, a majority of voters disapprove of the handling of the economy by the president. take a look at this. almost 60% think his economic policies have actually hurt the economy or made no difference at all and that of course is by far the number one issue yet 50% say he deserves to be reelected. do you think, steve, people believe the bill clinton argument that nobody, no president, could have actually solved this in four years? >> yeah, i do think that had some effect. there is no question that president obama came out of the conventions with a little bit of momentum. you talk, it is not only showing up in the public polling that we're talking about here today but talk to republican pollsters polling on senate and house races and they will talk about what they call the clinton bump. they have seen it across polling in various parts of the country that voters who are asked a question is the country on the right track, is the country on the wrong track, which most pollsters believe the single best determiner ho will win in november, there was a jump in
they both say that they have the answers to try to turn the economy around xshgs it really comes down to appealing to we think about 6% of the electorate right now who hasn't decided who they're going to vote for. of that 6% they live in nine states, including the state that i'm standing in right now. the other states that we're really focussing on as we just talked about, virginia, florida, ohio, it's also nevada, iowa, new hampshire. it's all across the spectrum of who these candidates are trying to reach out to, suzanne. >> and right where you rshgs of course, you mention in colorado nine electoral votes. critical to get them to the magic nm number needed to win. president obama seems to have the advantage in this state, and, of course, the dnc held their convention there back in 2008. how much does it matter to have the hometown advantage, to have the people who are sitting in that audience and perhaps you are ahead in the polls? does it make that much difference in a debate setting? >> well, he certainly has a little bit of a lead right now, according to the latest cnn poll of po
of the economies, and i think because of that mitt romney's gin more chances than he otherwise would to make his case to the american people. i think this very first debate next week may be his last best chance to make his case. >> do you think if the debate's a flop for mitt romney that all of a sudden some super-pacs and big dollar donors, some of the establishment, do they begin to abandon him next thursday? >> i think it will certainly heighten and go to defcon five. what's the next color is on the homeland security chart, i lose track of them, we'll probably go to. i think what mitt needs to do, craig -- >> fuchsia. >> -- is really be himself. stop trying to be a conservative. he's not. we're not talking about a guy with deep ideological convictions. his real moral convictions are in his family where he has a picturesque american model there. beyond that, he's known for making money for himself and other people and creating jobs for those who don't have wealth. that's who he needs to be. >> it sounds like steve is saying let mitt be mitt. is it too late for that? >> well, it's not as though
's focus is domestic. >> yep. >> no bigger domestic issue than the economy, as we know. we'll have a rather open format. do you think we'll actually hear a specific from mr. romney on how he plans for a revenue-neutral 20% tax cut across the board for every american? are we going to hear that tonight in. >> no, absolutely not. i think what you're going to hear and see is more of a tactic. sort of a communications tactic of making it sound like he's talking like a plan, like that 17,000 cap he threw out the other day and then his team walked that right back. probably -- >> karen, that's known as i've got a hole in my pocket, dear liza. >> that's right. you'll hear him talk about a number of these things as if it sounds like a plan, but without any specifics. i think what you'll see from the president is more specifics. again, the president actually has a record to talk about. i mean, put forward a health care plan. happened to be, you know, based on mitt's, but whatever. he has a jobs plan, a number of things of specifics he can point to whereas romney doesn't. i think that will be part of t
trying to explain why he is pumping even more money into the economy. connell: the supreme court back to work today. whether your cell phone data is protected under the fourth amendment. judge andrew napolitano coming up. dagen: costing apple billionths. connell: let's start with nicole petallides. nicole: looking pretty good here today. we see the dow is up more than 1%. the s&p up nearly 1%. the text -- tech heavy nasdaq up. this was after three months of contraction. that was some good news there. another thing helping things along -- the dollar is lower, the euro is higher. you are seeing just about every name in the dow with an up arrow. i want you to take a book here at macy's. they will higher 80,000 for the seasonal. kohls, amazon, toys "r" us, just to name a few. dagen: host chris wallace had a little trouble getting information from vice presidential candidate paul ryan on his tax plan. >> it is lower by 2013. >> how much does it cost? >> it is revenue neutral. [ talking over each other ] >> we will get to that. >> let me just tell you. it would take me too long to go throug
, including iowa. it'timeor aew enomiargument. patriotism. rooted in the belief that growing our economy against with a strong, thriving middle class. read my plan. compare it to governor romney's and ciorrs anksor lteni. >> the president introduced the theme of economic patriotism into his stump speech at a campaign event in virginia today. >> during campaign season, you always hear a lot about patriotism. well, u know what? it's time foa neecon ioti. an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> this is a new line in the president's campaign speech. it's not simply a call for policies and programs to support the middle class. it's a contrast with his opnent. thcontst ion fl display in another ad using mitt romney's own words. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what, who are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believes government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe they're entitled to health care, foo houng, u nat. they'll vote for the p
the president's handling of the economy and what mitt romney would do were he elected president to fix the economy. so that is basically the game plan from the romney campaign, do no harm and live to fight another day. >> it is interesting to say he's not looking for a knockout punch, that's apparently what shannon o'brien who was hoping to win that gubernatorial race in massachusetts back in 2002, that's what he said she was so good at. we're talking to her later. romney has been pretty -- he's been known to get forceful, jim, when he lets his dander up, if you will. let's look at a clip here from a debate, a year ago, this is romney, rick perry, mostly romney. roll it. >> the way the rules work here is i get 60 seconds, and you get -- and you get 30 seconds to respond, right? anderson -- would you please wait? are you just going to keep talking? >> yes. >> are you going to let me finish with what i have to say. >> remember that moment? i guess my question, having seen that back and forth, remember, you know, romney kind of getting into rick perry's face, can you be that aggressive to
obama. obama does not want to talk about the current economy and his current performance, because he knows under that debate he loses. >> if it's all about -- if it's all about record, can mitt romney run on his record and appeal to those that are the ground base of his own party to come out? >> absolutely. the ground base -- the most important thing not only for his side, but if you look at hispanics and women and a variety of voters, the most important topic they're interested in is the economy. it's the economy. i hate to quote james carville, but it's the economy, stupid, once again. part of why people are focusing on anything but the economy is because economic news is not good. they have not passed a -- any budget much less a balanced budget in years. it is unbelievable. >> quick, because i want to get some sound, but go ahead. >> real quick, this notion that somehow the president and democrats aren't out there talking about the economy is laughable. the problem with the romney campaign is not that they don't talk about the economy. they don't talk about their policies. it's th
: tonight is the debate and the economy will be front and center. would you expect the president to admit any of this policies did not work? >> reporter: i would expect the president would deflect attention away from his record. if if you ask where is the middle class going next year after the election, you have -- i would say that the middle class is going to get maybe even worse off because we look like we are head for a real slowdown in the economy and the word recession next year has been used frequently. >> it's being bantered about. stu varney, thank you so much. bill: joe biden was in charlotte, north carolina making that comment. 15 electoral votes. a look at how he succeed, 4.3 million votes cast in the state. president obama won by 14,000 votes. he carried a 100,000 vote margin in charlotte which is where mr. biden was. he had a narrow margin of victory, more than any other state. in charlotte unemployment is above 10%. we'll see how they do, it's tough to win against those numbers. jamie: those numbers are seen in many places,en it will be interesting to hear about what they sa
't really amount to much. yesterday they had a sort of a veterans message and an economy message during events in virginia but they can't wait for just the debates. i think conservatives want to see not just big events in terms of big ideas but big events that grab the nation's attention. the romney campaign is frustrated because they say all the press asks them about is process but that's par for the course and true in every campaign i've ever covered, the press will talk about process particularly polls. mitt romney, conservatives are waiting for him to be big in events, big in message, big in personality. it seems like right now the campaign is waiting for him to do that in the debates. >> mark, you know why they focus on process, because there's not substance to -- you know, it's funny, in 1988 facing a more hostile press george h.w. bush never once whined about process. you know why? because james baker told the press what they were going to be following. and he told the candidate what he was going to be doing. and every week the candidate did it. the message was unbelievable. but
how we're worried in that stagnant obama economy more people are becoming dependent on economy. >> what could be better for the emotional stability of a presidential candidate than your running mate calling you inarticulate? never mind. paul ryan is the one key numbers guy. so let's hear him explain the tax policy. >> the cut in tax rates is lower -- all american tax rates -- >> how much does it cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> it's not revenue neutral unless you take away the deductions. the first half, lowering the tax rates. does that cost $5 trillion? >> no, no. look, i won't get into a baseline argument with you. >> you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have the time -- it would take me too long to go through all the math. >> all right. you know what, mitt? you better put paul ryan away somewhere. send him to a sports bar somewhere in ohio. at least he can have a few beers with voters. he's got that going for him. who knows, it might help make inroads with that 9% deficit romney is facing against the president in the latest ohio poll. then again, there may not b
of terrorism. while some romney advisers argue they should keep their focus on the economy, politico says plans are in the works for mitt romney to deliver a major foreign policy speech shortly after wednesday's debate. what do you think of that? you think he should do that? >> yes. i think, as i said, right after the killing, that wasn't the time to talk about this. >> right. >> now is the time, several weeks later, to talk about it. john heilemann, the lead in "the new york times," mistake in faith and security seen at libya mission before benghazi raid. response to the june bomb raised confidence in local guards. this benghazi story is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i thi
for this debate tonight; jobs, the economy, health care. but first, a new distraction for the obama campaign during a critical week. it comes in the form of a video released by "the daily caller" of then-presidential candidate barack obama back in 2007. in it he speaks to a group mostly made up of black pastors. his speech got some coverage at the time he delivered it, but his prepared remarks did not include some of the off-the-cuff, off-prompter moments, if you will, alluding to alleged racism to hurricane katrina and spending decisions made by our elected leaders. our chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live in washington with more. mike? >> reporter: hi, megyn. the tone has attracted some attention with then-candidate obama sounding different as he spoke to a large group of african-american religious leaders in virginia. one major topic was mr. obama trying to contrast the response to hurricane katrina and other high-profile disasters. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget
. economists say a healthy u.s. economy would have a jobless rate of about 6%. that is shown by the yellow line you see across the chart there. today's report shows the unemployment rate dropped but stayed well above this mark of a healthy economy. so much of this comes to people, how they feel about how they're doing right now. bill: quick check on the health of the economy and how things are going. we'll check out that throughout the morning here. at four minutes past the hour now. governor romney building on momentum of his successful debate performance, taking dead aim at the president's jobs plan. here is governor romney with sean manty last night. >> what i find so offensive about his tax plan, by raising taxes on small business, as he does, he will kill jobs. and right now, what america needs, as much as anything else is more jobs, more jobs more take-home pay. is the whole focus of my campaign. i know what the president's been campaigning on and saying about me is very different than what i actually am, what i actually believe. that is where the difference came. what the president has b
at a military acted any many pennsylvania romney hammered away at the president over the economy. >> i have to tell you that i don't know how a single person who goes to this institution could consider voting for the incumbent for president. i say that for this reason. if they want to go in the military, why, he is planning on cutting our military by about $1 trillion over the next decade. if they want to go on to either get a job directly or go on to a four-year college and come out with a gee, you know that 50% of kids coming out of college today can't find a job or a college level job. on both fronts, this president's policies have not worked for the young people of america. >> their first debate happens on wednesday. the romney team is downplaying expectations. romney advisor beth myers distributes this memo explaining why the president is probably going to do better. she says that president obama is one of the most talented political communicateors in modern history. this will be his eighth one-on-one presidential debate and romney's first. the president will use his ample rhetorical g
in coordination with this, the question of is president obama handling the economy still not great but better. anything like that, helps the incumbent. remember, president obama's not going to be able to make the case that he fixed everything in four years. he's not trying to do that. what he has to say is i've made progress and can make more. in order to make that argument you have to be able to show people you've made progress or at least have people believe you've made progress, movement in the right direction numbers suggest that he's making that case. >> and we also have our new telemundo/nbc news poll breaking within this hour and that shows a 50-point lead among hispanic voters. 71/21 likely voters. that is a huge lead. the question is, of course, whether there is enthusiasm among hispanic voters and whether they're going to come out and vote. >> right. and even bigger gap than 69/31 what president obama beat john mccain among latinos in 2008. look, this is a problem in this election for republicans, andrea, but a bigger problem in 2016, 2020 and beyond. the hispanic community is obvio
trying to dig the economy out of a massive hole. we were facing this economic collapse and he came into office and he has a long way to go. he needs four more years to make the difference that he's -- that we're starting to make now. and that we just need to believe that his policies do make a difference. he can now point to the data to say, look, they're making that difference. >> so that tells me even though we for so many people, the psychological number, eight, not that we're under the 8% mark in unemployment, do the obama folks think we're not over the hump, economically speaking? >> they concede that and that people are still hurting and what matters to people at home is not some number that the labor department puts out, but their own economic circumstance and whether they have a job, whether they know somebody unemployed and this is very abstract. so people are still hurting. but in terms of the political gamesmanship, 8% is an important marker because when the president passed the stimulus, one of his economists projected, it wasn't a promise, but a projection that 8% woul
of the economy, and where the jobs are now? >> it says, quite frankly, suzanne, that you're seeing steady hiring. not robust hiring, but steady hiring, and when you look at the unemployment rate dropping to 7.8% we know that there are people who are getting part-time jobs. there are people who are starting their own companies or starting to work for themselves from home. that's what is moving those numbers. you see that the private sector added 104,000 jobs, and the government sect or added 10,000. we saw health care jobs created. more than 44,000 there. this has been a trend for a couple of years. about 16,000 jobs lost over there in the manufacturing sector, which is, of course, very, very important to some of these battleground states, suzanne. >> christy, some of the attacks from conservatives, such as jack welch, saying they don't believe the numbers. they believe the books are cooked essentially. explain the process of how we reach these numbers today? >> there's spin, and then there are conspiracy theories, and the spin, which is valid, if spin can be valid, is that, you know, look, you s
. there is no way for us to get our economy going until we have addressed the cost of health care. when i talk to small businesses and large corporations, after peril, their biggest item is the cost of benefits -- after payroll, their biggest item is the cost of benefits. that has to be priority number one camp that is why i disagreed with the president's approach. he should have made economic case for why we need to get a handle of health care costs. >> you have talked about wasteful spending in washington. you have issued statements about that night could be mentioned loopholes. those are difficult things to define for some people. give me one example of wasteful spending and a loophole. >> wasteful spending is the 30 cents on every health care dollar that goes to the health insurance industry that has nothing to do with patient care. that is wasteful spending. wasteful spending is the fact that the federal government is prohibited from negotiating on pharmaceutical pricing. the bush drug benefit forces to negotiate for the best price. that is and $80 billion giveaway. >> what is a loophole?
nation is more than $16 trillion in the red. that is a massive bubble that threatens our entire economy. how do the candidates handle this tomorrow night? let's ask chris stirewalt our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on foxnews.com live, and stewart varney is the host of varney & company on the fox business network. thank you so much for being here. chris i want to start with you. what can either candidate say to grab, you know, america by the lapel and make them understand what each one of them wants to do to change our financial dire straits? >> it's a heck after lot easier for mitt romney on this one since he is the outsider and hasn't been in office and wasn't part of make thag debt and president obama has over seen in fact the unprecedented increase in size of the federal debt, and as a matter of fact in talking to senior people from romney land that is exactly what mitt romney means to do when he gets on that debate stage in denver, is go off the president not just on what romney says are ineffectual policies like the president's healthcare law and stimulus
making $50,000. >> it's the right way to encourage economic growth. you grow an economy from the middle out, not from the top down. >> one thing he did not do in his first four years, just to raise taxes. >> it's time for a new economic patriotism. >> you were lucky enough to attend cran brook. >> you wear crummy shoes. people notice. >> we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare. i got everybody in my state insured. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care. >> teach a man how to fish. >> my heart aches for the people i have seen. >> don't simply feed fish. >> every now and then i'm known to make a mistake. >> we throw our own penalty flag at mr. romney and mr. ryan. >> romney, ryan, romney, ryan. >> so that people don't get tired of her. >> when you go after my man -- >> stop it, this is hard. you want to try, it get in the ring. >> was i a little strong? >> never apologize for america. >> people will call my awful things every day. there are going to be bumps in the road. >> what's with the wily coyote nuclear bomb? >> 90 minute
could have. >> reporter: his dream opened just as the economy crashed. office space went unfilled. disney pulled out. >> a new world class resort casino. >> reporter: but now peterson has a plan to fix it. >> this is a resort. this isn't just a casino. along with the upscale restaurants, along with the upscale retail is another ammenity called a casino. >> reporter: peterson's casino dreams have faced a furious onslaught. >> we've heard those empty claims before. >> good paying jobs. >> reporter: caesar's and mgm have responded with a barrage of ads of their own. 1 poll suggests maryland voters are about evenly split on this question despite the millions of dollars that have been spent on both sides. bruce leshan, 9 news now. >> revenue estimates for maryland's slot par mores were way overblown, but patterson -- parlors were way overblown, but peterson insists this will be different, a las vegas resort style hotel. >>> fairfax county police want you to look closely at this next picture which dubs the office creeper. the suspect poses as a maintenance guy in order to steal walle
, dealing with the economy. they would go back to the talking points in the attacks. it was clear they were trying to score points. fireworks. a "game change"er if you will. i want you to see here's mitt romney in a scenario that played out in the debates, the primaries with rick perry in las vegas. >> i'm speaking. i'm speaking. >> you get 30 seconds. this is the way the rules work here. in get 60 seconds and then you get 30 donds respond. anderson -- >> you say -- you knew. >> would you please wait? are you just going keep talking? let me finish what i have to say. >> all right. there's always that opportunity really when somebody gets in the other's skin and you lose control of the debate and he yearly lost control over his cool, calm demeanor. what are some of the challenges he's going to be up against when he's faced off with obama. >> i think you're absolutely right. i mean that's a situation where it gets out of control and people start not looking very presidential. and you certainly don't want that on either side. so, my guess is you're going to see president obama playing defense
